Sustainable Spray-On Clothing Technology Turns Into Fabric Instantly

Sustainable Spray-On Clothing Technology Turns Into Fabric Instantly
Advertisement Over the past few years, spray-on body paint that looks like clothing has gotten popular. It’s even starting to show up in television ads and other marketing endeavors. This is the first time though that I’ve seen actual spray-on clothing. This technology, called Fabrican, is based on 15 years of research by fashion designer Manel Torres and particle engineer Paul Luckham. When I think about using spray-on clothing in daily life, the roadblock that I hit in my mind is that we wouldn’t be able to spray our own clothing on our bodies. I wonder if in a few decades from now we’ll all either 3D print our clothes or make them in some other unusual way like this.

10 Futuristic Materials You Should Know About | FILACART BLOG | 3D Printing M... Materials science is really paving the way for bringing the things we see in sci-fi into a reality. Below we list 10 futuristic materials that you should know about because they could be set to change the world as we know it. 1. Aerogel Aerogel is what you get from supercritical drying of liquid gels of alumina, chromia, tin oxide, or carbon. It’s 99.8% space which makes it semi-transparent, but despite its incredibly low density it shows surprising strength, especially as an insulator. 2. Carbon nanotubes are long chains of carbon held together by the strongest bond in all chemistry, the sacred sp2 bond, even stronger than the sp3 bonds that hold together diamond. 3. “Metamaterial” refers to any material that gains its properties from structure rather than composition. 4. We’re starting to lay down thick layers of diamond in CVD machines, hinting towards a future of bulk diamond machinery. 5. Diamonds may be strong, but aggregated diamond nanorods (amorphous fullerene) are stronger. 6.

3D printed pills, dildos, guns and babies By this point, you’re already well aware of 3D printers and how they’re continuing to push technology to mindblowing places we didn’t expect to end up in. They’re even available for the general public. As of this week, the US just approved the first 3D printed pill. An anticonvulsant (treatment for seizures), Spritam previously had issues with dissolving, but thanks to 3D modification, more porous layers have been added to the pill. Organs are, as you know, vital. Whether there’s a need for a new leg, arm, you name it, the 3D printer has revolutionized the custom prosthetic as well. This is kind of terrifying. Jesus Christ. The 3D printing market will most likely become a common tool for food production in the future. A neat advantage for 3D printed food customers is that you can preselect the nutritional value should you want a certain dosage of vitamins, even minerals. Fuck, this is weird. Download the software and go ahead, print your sex toy at your own convenience.

The Instagram accounts changing the world No one can really dispute the power of social media. Whether it's raising awareness for once-ignored issues, or helping to bring down entire governments, sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are now stronger than ever. Offering people the chance to take pressing political problems into their own hands, it's become a whole new way of addressing everyday social injustice. With their slogan emblazoned across the chests of basically everyone – from Cara Delevingne to Miley Cyrus – the notorious Free The Nipple movement has had no shortage of publicity recently. Born out of desperation and despondency, Amber Amour started the #StopRapeEducate campaign after she was sexually assaulted by her roommate last year. Poet Alyssa Seibert has swapped images for words with her Instagram account. “What attracted me to Instagram was its ability to share with a wider audience the stories I see everyday”, writes photojournalist Ruddy Roye.
